We had lunch here as a family of four.Staff were so friendly and welcoming all the food is homemade and fresh and a very reasonable price for the centre of croyde if you fancy a real authentic cream tea then well worth a visit

I visited with two friends for light lunch and a cream tea. Sat in the lovely garden and the food, drinks and service was great. Scones were delicious and whilst we didn’t have any cake they also looked amazing. We will return!

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to read that you thought the portions were small as we always ask our customers to let us know if they would like some more cream or jam for their scones. We take last orders at 4.30pm....More
